Two charged after man killed and his body dumped in a park

BATON ROUGE —- Baton Rouge Police have arrested two men for their alleged involvement after a 34-yr-old man was shot and dumped in a Brec Park, which led to a volunteer group finding his body.

BRPD arrested Gregory Williams, 45, and Christopher Smith, 23, in the shooting death of Christopher Holden.

Williams was charged with second-degree murder and obstruction of justice. Smith was charged with accessory to second-degree murder and obstruction of justice.

Holden was shot and killed at a different location and his body was then dumped at the Flannery Road Park.

The discovery was made around 7:30am on Saturday, July 15 at the Brec Park on S. Flannery Rd. near Goodwood Blvd.

Jennifer Richardson with Keep Tiger Town Beautiful, a non-profit volunteer group, was at the Brec Park as part of a service day with nearly 25-30 participants to clean up the park.

“We have found all sorts of things in Baton Rouge from machine guns, hand guns, needles, drugs, everything but we have never found a body,” said Richardson.

Richardson tells UWK one of the volunteers came across the body thinking someone had passed out. However, they soon realized the young man had been shot.

“The volunteer came up and said ‘I don’t think he’s sleeping, he’s dead.’ He had been shot in the back,” Richardson said.

No further details have been provided at this time as to where Holden was killed or if any arrests have been made.
